Road America

Seth had a race at Road America (Elkhart Lake, WI). This is a beautiful part of the US. We stayed in Sheboygan and Blue Harbor Resort. 

This is clearly not my picture, but here's what it looks like. It overlooks Lake Michigan and has a water park, putt putt, restaurants, and shops in walking distance. It's a wonderful place to stay!

We flew in Thursday morning and hit Cedar Valley Cheese Store/Factory that afternoon. We all enjoyed some ice cream and cheese!
There are acres and acres of beautiful farmland. There's a place that sells the biggest tractors I've ever seen and the kids love to climb on them. 

James is in hog heaven. 

In the evenings, they have a story time around a bonfire. Afterwards, the kids got to roast marshmallows.

I went for a nice run around Lake Michigan Friday morning

We went to the track later that morning to see Seth practice. 

James got to sit in daddy's car....

help Q jack the car up....

 and "help" with the tires. He thought he was something else!

We spent that afternoon at the waterpark.  I've mentioned James can be hit or miss around water. On this particular day, he LOVED it! He wouldn't do the bigger slides, but he was all over the small ones and swimming in the pool. 

Adelyn and I raced each other down the big water slides.

Saturday was race day! Here we are at the Fan Walk. James made sure to get an autograph from all the Bimmerworld drivers.

During the race, Adelyn lost her other top front tooth. Looks like it's pureed foods from here on out. 

 James was SUPER DUPER cranky Saturday morning (and I was super duper annoyed). I guess he was tired, because the boy took a 2 hour nap during Seth's noisy race. That was fine with me- I got to actually pay attention to the race. And it was a good race! It'll be televised August 17th at noon on Fox Sports 1. Lots of action! 

Adelyn played with her princesses for 2 1/2 hours. 

Dan qualified 20th and they finished 8th. Not too shabby!
